[link to this post]
 
Another 35 exchanges have been announced as accepting orders on some cabinets.

ABERDEEN PORTLETHEN, ACOCKS GREEN, ACOMB, ARBROATH, BIGGIN HILL, BOLDON, BOOTLE; MERSEYSIDE, BRITON FERRY, CAMELFORD, CLAUGHTON, COSHAM, EASTBOURNE PEVENSEY MARINA, EMSWORTH, EXMOUTH, FARINGDON, GLASGOW SPRINGBURN, HIGHBURY, KINGSWINFORD, LYE, MANNINGHAM, MELTON MOWBRAY, MITCHELL, PADSTOW, PAIGNTON, PRESTATYN, Roath, SHARROW, ST. BUDEAUX, ST.GENNYS, STANECASTLE, STEYNING, STOKESLEY, Tadcaster, WISBECH, WOODSEATS.

This brings the total to 1375 Exchanges with FTTC/P available at some locations.

So now 66 Exchanges enabled from 158 forecast, 92 to go. So still close to the trend trend to complete them all!

Can anyone help with the on ongoing question of what cabinets are being updated? I am on Paignton exchange, cabinet 17. I have looked around by putting postcodes into the checker for Paignton area and so far have only found 2 cabinets showing ready from Dec 13. Obviously not mine! Any help would be appreciated

There is no list, however this method of checking seems to work quite well.

1. Use the address checker - https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/adsl/ADSLChecker.a... - Only insert the postcode here and hit proceed. It will then offer you a more specific address. From this, it will tell you the cabinet number.

2. Go to the postcode checker - https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/adsl/ADSLChecker.p... - Insert the same postcode as before. Here it will tell you the date that FTTC will be available.

It does seem to be accurate as using this same method in an area where FTTC has been enabled at the exchange but selecting a cabinet that has no works carried out shows on both checkers that there is no date for fibre.

Its a bit long winded way, but its worked for me.

Using the Openreach checker may help as well.

For instance Cab 4 at TQ3 3AG has a marker giving why it is delayed.

Likewise for Cab 38 at TQ3 1BT.

Try with your postcode and others around you.

Otherwise find the cabs that are close to you and check postcodes by them, you may also be able to see the new FTTC cabs next to the old ones.

I heard it was because no suitable location for the cabinet could be found. If do, then its likely to be on hold/stopped indefinitely

Only 1 new exchange this week, but not on the list in december as it is a Wales BDUK site.

Bangor (N Wales).

So still 66 Exchanges enabled from 158 forecast in Dec for Jan to Mar, 92 to go.

But this brings the total to 1376 Exchanges with FTTC/P available at some locations.
